Yield: 6 servings
Community Recipe from


  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive
  • 12 ounce(s) Kielbasa sausage (low-fat) thinly sliced
  • 1 onion (large) chopped
  • 4 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) fresh thyme leaves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper
  • 10 cup(s) chicken broth
  • 1 can(s) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can(s) cannellini beans (15 oz) rinsed & drained
  • 9 ounce(s) fresh tortellini
  • 4 cup(s) baby spinach or baby kale
  • 1 cup(s) freshly grated parmesan cheese


  1. Heat oil in large pot. Add sausage, onion, garlic cloves, thyme and crushed red pepper flakes. Saute until vegetables are soft and sausage browned, about 12 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer , about 30 minutes. (If desired, can be prepared 1 day ahead to this point. Cool and refrigerate or freeze for longer storage.) Bring soup back to a simmer, if necessary, and add the cannellini beans and the tortellini to soup. Simmer until pasta is just barely tender, about 5 minutes. Finally, add the baby greens of choice (kale or spinach) and stir just until wilted. Ladle soup into bowls. Serve, passing grated cheese separately.
